of the auto bailout took place. and there's no way mitt romney could win that state. basically tied right now. and again, whether michigan ends up in his cone or not, this shows a huge thing taking place. we've got to assume it's taking place in florida, north carolina, virginia. i'd be shocked if mitt romney wasn't ahead in a lot of these swing states by the time these polls come out. >> and it forces the obama campaign to allocate resources to places like michigan, which they probably thought they had pretty faithfully in hand. but look, the poll numbers on women are really interesting. i have always believed that most of us in the news business very often underestimate the impact of the economy on women as a voting group. >> yeah. always talking about abortion and a lot of other social issues. because, you know what? it's the same thing too with a lot of gay voters that will come up to me and go, listen, i care about gay marriage. you know what i care about more? getting a job. >> bingo. >> my partner getting a job. we can't forget that in this sort of hot house where we talk about all of

the republican nomination fight against mr. romney. thereby winning the right to lose in the general election to barack obama. but earlier this year when mitt romney was running for the republican nomination for the second time, so he could earn the right to run against barack obama, earlier this year the mccain campaign opposition research against mitt romney from the last election found its way on to the interview. andrew kosinski found the research that the mccain put together and published it from beginning to end. it was essentially a how-to guide for running against mitt romney. all of his observed weaknesses, inconsistencies, political statements on the record. for people interested in politics and the political prospects of mitt romney. there were huge sections on mitt romney at bain capital buying up companies and then gutting them for their own personal profit. ten pages documenting his many stances on abortion rights. and there was this bit. gun control. gun control in the top hits section. remember this is relativity straight forward opposition research from one of mitt romney's f
-point lead before the debate. in colorado, in one right-leaning poll romney is now up by 3 points. the same showed him losing by 5 before the debate. now he's up by 3. in virginia, the president is ahead by 3 in virginia. that same poll had the president's lead at 5 points before the debate. that shows the president's lead shrinking. in michigan, it's now barack obama by just 3 points. the president had led by 10 last month. now it's down to 3. in ohio today, a poll on the right gives the president an edge of 2 points. that poll in iowa shows a gain for mr. obama, a 5-point gain. in florida, the same poll shows a 4-point swing for romney. he's up by 2 points. so the major fall or minor lift, however, you rattle the number lose, as the overall national polling shifts and the swing state races shift with them, the state where the romney campaign is hoping for the biggest shift of all is in ohio. in modern political history, ohio has been the path to the presidency for republican candidates. if republican candidates win ohio, they win the white house. if mitt romney doesn't win ohio,
down on sesame street. >> although mitt romney clearly won the debate, the obama campaign right away on thursday managed to crystallized the public's funny bone. a cross between a funny bone and a hot nerve reaction to defend big bird and company. that was thursday. then on friday, the obama campaign got that huge jobs report with unemployment falling below 8% for the first time in the obama presidency. unemployment above 8% has been a favorite talking point for mitt romney and that talking point on friday went kaput. and the country has now had the best election year improvement in the unemployment numbers since ronald reagan ran for reelection in 1984. remember the morning in america thing, that's what it was about. so mitt romney may have won the debate, but president obama won the post debate. at leastt seemed that way for these last few days. then today back down to earth for democrats. we started getting in the first solid round of polling that reflected the results of the debate. and however, well the obama campaign did in managing the post debate spin and the post debate camp

's national political correspondent jim acosta reports from iowa right now where romney held a rally earlier in the day. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign is clearly feeling good, but at the same time top advisors are trying to downplay the importance of a slew of new polls showing the gop nominee now in a real horse race with president obama in a sign that all of this has gotten the president's attention. this campaign has suddenly turned into a race over small things or rather one big bird. plowing into his proposals to help american farmers, mitt romney had poultry on his mind in iowa. of the eight-foot and yellow variety as he accused the president of fouling up the nation's weak recovery. >> you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. i actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving the american people and saving good jobs and saving our future. >> one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird. big bird. >> reporter: it was a direct response to the latest ad from the obama campaign. >> mitt romne
the race trending, tightening, trending towards romney, at least right now, we begin with peter alexander, traveling with the romney campaign. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you, a romney adviser tells me that the campaign is stronger, that the candidate is increasingly confident. he tried to draw a sharp contrast on the issue of national security. with just 29 days to go, following the last debate, the race is quickly tightening, but remains volatile. the polls had different results. the latest poll shows romney leads, now up four points between the likely voters, but a new gallup poll shows the president up by five. looking to capitalize on his momentum, today, romney tried to frame himself as a steady commander-in-chief, and in what his campaign feels is a major foreign policy speech, accusing president obama of weak leadership. >> i know that president obama hopes for a stronger and more prosperous middle east, but hope is not a strategy. >> reporter: and calling for a change of course, but offering few new policy details, romney argued that the middle east is a more dangerous pl

right after the debate, the poll find romney swinging ahead of president obama, 49% to 45%. due to new support from romney from women voters who at one time strongly favored the president. and romney blasting the obama administration on foreign policy yesterday. during a speech in virginia he claimed the risk of conflict in the middle east is higher now than it was when president obama took office. he urged a more aggressive u.s. role in the syrian civil war. >>> meantime, president obama campaigning on the west coast sounded an urgent note in his appeal to voter. he told supporters in san francisco they must be almost obsessive in getting out the vote. the president and mitt romney returned to the crucial state of ohio later today to campaign in that critical state. >>> first lady michelle obama is sharing a bit what goes on behind the closed dufrz the white house. in a "nightline" interview she told cynthia mcfadden she steers clear of trying to influence her husband's approximately sees instead sticking to causes like fighting childhood obesity. mrs. obama talked about how comfortab

.9 trillion or 5 trillion. >> you're mischaracterizing the romney plan. you're right, 5 trillion by lowering the tax rates but also cuts about cutting loop holes and -- >> ahhhh. >> but that is part of the plan. >> but he won't say which loop holes and which deductions. >> joining me washington post kol columnest and author. you. >> you have a lot of heart, ed. >> i have so much heart. there are polls on the table that mitt romney is talking about. i tweeted out tonight, could we actually elect a man who has not explained his tax proposal to the american people when we're sitting supposedly on the edge of this cliff when it comes to the country's finances? e.j., your thoughts? >> i still don't think voters are going to sort of support something like this, not knowing what is in it. i've been wondering why we haven't heard more of romney was for his 5 trillion cut before he was against it. because you look at this plan and it is 5 trillion that the cuts add up to. and you've got to offset them somehow. and the only way to offset them is to go after the popular dededuction. homeowner deduction
in romney. i mean, he is against the right for a woman to have control over her body. >> reporter: but romney supporters says reproductive rights and other social issues have not come up in her door to door campaigning. the chairman of romney's loudoun county victory effort has knocked on thousands of doors since july. >> believe it or not, different than any other election, this question has not really come up. >> reporter: she said she believes the paramount issue for women in 2012 is the economy. >> i asked them to think about where they were four years ago and how things have gone. and i just talked through, did the bailouts help you? did some of these other programs help you? did the quote/unquote shovel ready jobs help you? >> reporter: barack obama won loudoun county back in 2008. a vote that was fueled by ballots cast by suburban women. that is one reason michelle obama is here again. romney supporters hoping to turn loudoun county red this time around. for now, reporting live, julie carey, news4. >> hello, buckeyes! >> president obama himself has just wrapped up a campaig
mitt romney? "varney & company" about to begin right now. follow the wings. >> it's tuesday, october 9th. earnings season starts after the bell today. the vice-president and the vice-presidential debate two days away and right now here is our company, sandra smith in studio and nicole petallides from the the floor of the new york stock exchange. guys, new polls from pew research shows a big post debate bounce for mitt romney. the broadest poll of all voters has romney with a 4 point lead and this was taken for four days starting with the debate. the day after the debate now. the previous poll had president obama with an 8 point lead, but the swing that's more pronounced is among women. it's a major, major thing, and 47-47. that's a 18 point swing from the previous poll. on to another area where mitt romney is catching up on money, goldman sachs employees, they gave more than a million dollars to obama in 2008. and they've only given them $136,000, on the other hand goldman sachs employees have given mitt romney 900,000, and more to the super pac. so, sandra, lots of signs point to go a
perfectly, right? i mean, here is the problem, again, so you heard this idea from romney, but i didn't hear how that math is going to add up, and we're not going to hear how that math is going to add up because it doesn't add up. this is part of what i think the obama campaign needs to do is to remind voters that this is the rhetoric we're hearing from mitt romney because he will say anything, whatever audience he's in front of, he'll say what it is he thinks that that audience wants to hear. notice while he was in iowa, he didn't talk about wind energy tax credits which is an issue for him in a number of key states. in ohio he probably won't talk about how he was on the wrong side of a labor issue last year that was a big deal to many ohioans. and he won't talk about how he said the auto industry should just go under. i think continuing to remind people, you know, the rest of the story is awfully important here. >> david, i'm beginning to run out of taxes that this man is going to cut. can you work out the math of this? does it make any sense? >> the math, i hate to tell you this, is not i
worry right now with defense cuts. >> the polls give mitt romney high marks for winning over voters -- women voters in the last debate. they say in terms of barack obama, he needs to convince women to give him one more chance and the belief that the years will be better than the last. years will be better than the last. withll talk david smallwood: maryland money needs to stay in marylan it's just that simple, i mean, it's a no brainer. anncr: every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty... million at casinos in west virginia, delaware... and pennsylvania. one west virginia paper calls it a "cash cow" for them. but its cost maryland over one billion dollars. ney that could have created good jobs and... better schools for us. question seven keepsps maryland money in maryland. david allwood: question seven, i think it will be a... good thing for the state off maryland. am i don't know. any medications? last immunization shots? really? honey, what's my blood pressure medicine called? one time i took something and i blew up like a puffer fish. i'm probably allergic to that. at ka
can do both. i think romney is doing both and romney -- watching him right now is watching him go through the different phases of romney, 509s shades of romney shall we say. >> that's exactly what they have thought. so people have talked about this a lot. the notion of they were kind of a fork in the road in the spring. do we want to run against him as a flip flopping phony or run against -- coreless, their pitch before, or do we want to cast him as a right wing radical. they seemed to and did make a decision to do right wing radical and one on throughout. i talked about david plouffe about this in may and he said we're going do both when we have to. we're going to say mitt romney there he goes trying to flip flop, coreless a phony, but not forget where he actually is, and then this is -- we're going to keep trying to pin him back to these positions he's taken. i think they have been horrible since the debate, the obama campaign. they are -- jon ward understates the degree to which they are knocked off guard and they are flailing right now and the stuff they're saying, the big bir

with how mitt romney accused president obama of a lack of leadership. >> reporter: that's right. mitt romney hoping to win over voters at home. >> reporter: in front of a crowd mitt romney tried to differentiate his foreign policy from president obama. mitt romney said the risk of conflict is higher now than when the president took office. he said he would increase military spending, arm syrian rebels and tighten sanctions on iran, on israel he would restart peace negotiations. >> reckless. >> reporter: just before the speech the obama campaign described his summer trip abroad and questions his first response to attacks on the u.s. embassy in libya. it is similar to what president obama said in a interview. >> governor romney has a tendency to shoot first and name later. as president you can't do that. >> reporter: till mitt romney hoping to capitalize on the momentum of his debate performance. >> reporter: international relations will take center stage at the october 22 debate. ann rubin, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan continued with the att
'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> breaking news right now of a scare at the first lady's event in leesburg at the fairgrounds. just before 6:00, a woman at the event collapse. mrs. obama immediately called for help. there is no word right now on the woman's condition. >> for thousands of people in alexandria, one day after we investigated problems with several high-rise buildings. >> tell us what made the difference. >> a number of residents we spoke with, many of whom had to use space heaters of the last several days just to stay warm are happy that the heat is back on after 7 on your side stepped in. >> you need people to step up to the plate and speak on behalf of others who do not have a voice. >> at about noon, the heat at the southern towers apartments in alexandria was turned back on for the winter. the temperature had dipped into the high 40's or 50's over the last several nights. the conditions were very uncomfortable here, particularly in the morning. monday night, a property manager told us due to the system's eight, the heat is turned on in the fall and kept
to it or if the romney campaign forces obama top defend his turf in pennsylvania, i'll start to feel that way. right now, i don't see it. >> let me play sound, keith, from mark halpern. he was just on with andrea mitchell. here's the intel that he was able to acquire. we're talking with team obama in chicago. let's play it. >> they feel just as good about where they are today as they did two weeks ago. they said clearly public polling shows change, they don't see any fundamental change in the race whatsoever. >> is that wishful thinking or accurate read? obviously, andrew sullivan is an obama supporter but he's a conservative. he's trying to look for a silver lining, and he feels that it's been disastrous. that's one person's opinion. what's yours? >> i was at the jets game last name -- >> boo. you should only go to cowboys games. what's wrong with snu. >> people booed mark sanchez in the first quarter of the game. >> wonder why? >> this is a team that has a losing season. the contrast is with barack obama he's on a winning team. they've run a perfect reply flawless campaign. he had one bad debate perfo
. the republican base is more united right now since the scott walker re-election, and it's because of romney's debate performance. i don't talk to conservatives at all that believe the mainstream media that romney won this debate by moving to the middle. we must be living on two totally different planets, because i don't hear that from conservatives at all. >> i believe keith believes you live on two different planets. michael, do you think it baloney? you have politico reporting several insiders felt that ann romney and tagg wanted mitt to be more personal and wanted him to perhaps soften the edges. despite what people like steve would want to hear as conservatives? let michael answer this. >> in the last 48 hours they've made efforts, the romney campaign has to humanize him. i reflect on the gop convention and the lost opportunity they had i thought the mormon testimonials were the most compelling aspect of the entire rnc. yet, it was lost because in primetime you didn't see it, only geeks like me tuned in and saw it. instead you saw clint eastwood and the empty chair. they recognize the e
toward mitt romney. you're right. the gallup poll had about three days of sampling before the debate that showed obama winning. after the debate, in the four days after the debate, gallup had romney and obama tied. if you look inside these numbers, 70% of people surveyed said that romney beat obama in the debate. he basically crushed obama, voters and independents believe that. we'll see polls out every day, we'll have to make sense of all of these and put them in context. there's unmistakable trend toward mitt romney after the debate. both campaigns have internal polling showing that the race has tightened since the debate. john, one thing i'm looking for are the swing state polls. they usually get them on wednesday, thursday, every week. places like ohio, virginia, florida, to see what the impact of the debate is in those states. i'm sure we'll have a poll every day, every hour from here on out, john. >> that's right. we have a poll on cnn on ohio that will be due baying this afternoon which everyone is waiting to see. that will be hugely interesting. also interesting, a new ad jus
't mean you should vote for romney. to me that is so obvious right? but apparently it's not obvious to people at home. that's why president obama has to do a much better job at these debates because they aren't theoretical. they're not patty cakes. it causes people to vote for the other guy. nonetheless, don't panic average all the polls that obama is up 48-47%. it's not a big lead but it's still a lead. and the swing states. well, if obama has the lead of over 2.5 percentage points that means its still comfortably in his category. you have wisconsin, nevada iowa and ohio. if he wins those those are comfortable leads for the moment being in those states, then he gets 290 electoral votes. he needs 270 and he wins comfortably. will he get those swing states? well, "huffington post"," their pollster did an analyst according to the polls he still has a 91% chance of winning in ohio and 71% chance in winning in colorado. those are incredible good numbers. the presidential pick, these are the guys who are in the market who is been to win this is people voting with their money. president o
it was a desperate attempt to shore up latino support. that's from the "washington times." but also right that romney is seeking to gain among early voters. the race is on to get early voters who are starting to go to the polls now. another headline from the wall street journal -- and here's a story looking at financial news and how that affects campaign 2012 -- and gas prices, california gas prices are expected to relax. they have had high prices recently and the governor has called for an early winter blend fuel. starting today and every tuesday up to election day we will get electoral scoreboard updates from a variety of publications. today features the wall street journal electoral map. a political reporter is joining us from the wall street journal. colleen? guest: first, we can see which states are swing states. we have at 8. a fairly small number of states up for grabs. within those states you can look at several measures. it's important to understanding the state's as we talk about the economy and the national economy and it's important to look at the economy within each of these dates so you
. >> you're mischaracterizing the romney plan. you're saying, you're right, $5 trillion by lowering the tax rates, but he also talks about cutting loopholes. that's part of the plan. >> he won't say which loopholes and which deduction. >> joining me is e.j. dionne, author of the new book "our divided political heart." i've got so much heart. you know the details, the devil in the details, however, you want to say it. the fact of the matter is, we do not have the loopholes on the table that mitt romney is talking about. and i tweeted out tonight, could we actually elect a man who has not explained his tax proposal to the american people when we're sitting supposedly on the edge of this cliff when it comes to the country's finances? e.j., your thoughts? >> i still don't think voters will support something like this, not knowing what's in it. i've been wondering why we haven't heard more of romney was for his $5 trillion tax cut before he was against it. because you look at this plan and it is $5 trillion that all those cuts add up to. you've got to offset them somehow. the only way to offset
. you know, because she has a right to vote for romney if that's her choice. but at the same time, i know president obama being the first african-american to get into the white house, it's a big -- it's big for all of us. things are changing. will african-americans vote for romney? probably not. >> right. >> you know, it's not going to happen. very few. he'll probably get 5%, 2%, something like that. one thing african-americans are going to do, they're either going to vote for president obama or they're going to stay home and vote for nobody. >> i guess something like what happened with stacy dash shows that race still is an issue. >> oh, yeah. >> it still matters. so he got to the white house, which is an incredible achievement, but color still matters. >> is race still an issue in this world? of course it is. it's always going to be. and then you'll always have the haves and the have nots, unfortunately. but i'm hoping that president obama can help the poor rise to that middle class, and we have a bigger middle class. >> we all just have to root for more people like you to overcome
, right? new "gallup poll" shows governor romney's debate win wasn't just big, it was historic. 72% of registered voters say governor romney won the debate. only 22% say the president did a better job. that is 52% difference according to gallup. it has never been that large before. bob beckel, former democratic campaign manager and andrea tanteros, both co-hosts "the five". >> that is all obama's fault. bill: simmer now. are you good? got yourself together? >> sure. bill: andrea, you have to go back to 1992 to find results that were even close and even then they did not top. how does this change the game you believe? >> i think it tightened in four key states that obama had a pretty significant lead in over last couple of weeks. i already hear you sighing bob, hold on and hold your heaving and grumbling for one minute. he tightened the lead in colorado, wisconsin, virginia and the key state, your home state, billy, of ohio. i think that is really important. he also increased the intensity gap. i believe he has a real chance because of three things. threeis i like to call them. one
to gain what we have as far as rights and it would be taking a giant step backward to vote in romney. he is against, you know, the right for a woman to have control over her body. >> i know how he feels personally about education and i know what he has said about education. and almost every woman with a child cares about education and cares about health care. so those are the two main issues that women are concerned about. >> reporter: so an eager crowd here waiting for the first lady. she should be on stage in the next few minutes. we'll bring you her remarks. julie cary, news4. >>> a federal judge today scolded the former d.c. county chair for disobeying court orders. brown plead guilty to a felony this summer and was supposed to check in by tephone each week. but he didn't. tom sherwood is here now with the story. >> you can ask any lawyer, if you're facing the jail sentence, you don't want to anger the judge. >> reporter: kwame brown was ordered to court tuesday for failing to check in weekly before he sentenced in november for a felony branch fraud. last summer brown, a former risin
campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three points in michigan and that's a good poll, it's likely that ohio is back to a dead-heat which insures that continue to be competitive through november 6. martha: this is
continue the way that they are going right now. that was pretty tough talk coming from mitt romney in that speech earlier today. >> jim acosta, appreciate it. dan lothian, thank you very much. >>> let's talk about what the polls could be telling us. ari fleischer joins us, a part-time unpaid communications advisor to the romney campaign. also obama 2012 pollster, cornell belcher and david gergen, senior political analyst. cornell, this is the first poll taken entirely after the debate although it's just one poll, certainly not a good indicator for president obama or his campaign. what do you make of it? >> well, look, i think we always said this is going to be a tight race, and it's going to continue to be a tight race. there's other polls out there, the political battleground poll came out today showed the president slightly ahead. reuters poll came out friday that showed the president slightly ahead. but look, it's not going to be about the polls. we all know this will be a close race. i think romney did a good job of selling it to the undecided leaning republicans out there and
you're seeing a lot of fluidity in the electorate right now. look, romney had a great debate but i think that's somewhat fool's gold, because you talk to my friends that worked on kerry campaign about great debates. i think romney did give the electorate a chance to take a second look at him, particularly the undecided voters who were leaning republican from the start. i wouldn't put a lot of weight in any of these national polls for the next couple days. i think in the next week or so you will see some battleground state polls come out. those will be a more clear i think those will be a more clear indication of whether or not the dynamic has changed. >> ari, before last week, president obama was showing strong signs of improvement on the economy, closing the gap in most polls. but i want to show you a number. the pew poll shows that 54% of registered voters agree with the phrase doubt that obama knows how to turn the economy around. what do you make of that? >> that's been consistent, and it's been mitt romney's hope. if this is an election about the state of the economy and wheth
